Top 10 Countries with Different Language & Nationality

zxm
I know couldn't write the title properly. But what I want to say is that these countries nationality's name and language's name are different. For example - Germany's official language is German. So its nationality is German.

There may be some countries that have their old languages but aren't use for official language. I've also excluded them.

I've worked carefully. But please error report if I've made mistake somewhere.

The nationality is in the bracket and name beside the country.
